ABOUT THE BAMBOOVEMENT
Are you also tired to see beaches covered in plastic? Seeing another video of a turtle or dolphin choking in
plastic? And, do you want to prevent that in 2050 there’ll be more plastic than fish in our oceans?
My name is Joshua and I founded The Bamboovement to tackle plastic pollution. By replacing daily used plastic products with sustainable alternatives. Together with a handful of like-minded people we work everyday on innovative ideas to rid our world of plastic waste.
While you’re reading this, 5.25 trillion pieces of macro- and micro plastics are currently littering our oceans. Making up for 60 – 90% of all marine debris. Every single day 8 million pieces are being added. This is one full garbage truck that is being dumped into the oceans every minute. Animals are suffering – every year, as a direct result of ocean plastic, more than one million seabirds and 100.000 other sea animals die.
But plastic is being recycled?
Just 9% of all plastic is recycled worldwide. Why? A lot of plastic products are not made to be recycled, like coffee cups, straws, bags and cutlery. Most of the times your toothbrush or coffee cup will end in a landfill, from here it’s a short way to our waterways and eventually to our oceans. Every product of The Bamboovement contributes to making our world a little more clean and beautiful once again.
